Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah


In its seventh year Mountainfilm On Tour continues to bring Savannah audiences cinematographic masterpieces of socially conscious films, jaw-dropping adventure, environmental awareness and inspiring human stories that all celebrate man’s indomitable human spirit.

The festival kicks off with critically acclaimed Racing Extinction by academy award-winning director Louie Psihoyos (The Cove). In this James Bond-esque adventure, Psihoyos and his team uncover the black market trade of endangered wildlife.

Giant projected images of endangered indigenous wildlife will be projected onto the SCAD Jen Library at dusk preceding the 7:00 p.m. film.
